Summer Math Homework:
I am pleased to tell you that we will be using a website called IXL over the summer and in our classroom this year. IXL is a comprehensive learning program offering unlimited math practice problems in thousands of skills—all of which are aligned to the Common Core. One of the best things about IXL is that your child can access it from home, so you have a chance to see your child's progress!
All middle school students are required to work on IXL over the summer and will receive a grade in the fall for completion of this requirement. Students need to work within the grade level that they just completed for a period of 45 minutes every 2 weeks. Students will be completing review problems from the material that they learned this year. I will be checking their progress over the summer. The goal is to ensure that students retain the information that they learned over the academic year.
If students have completed their summer math work requirement, they will be invited to participate in an icecream party after lunch during the first week fo school!
Summer To Do List (To Make Freshman Year Less Stressful)
Your child will be going to a new school in the Fall. It will be difficult for them in a variety of ways. They will not be familiar with their buildings, teachers, processes, schedules, classes, friends, etc. Please spend the summer familiarizing yourself with their new school. This may include requirements on how an absence for an orthodontic appointment is handled, the process for pulling them out of school early, or bringing them to school late. The more that you know, the easier it will be for you and your child to feel at ease about the transition. Below are some things for you to do during the summer that will help make your freshman year less stressful.
